So what Wind would everyone like today? How about another healthy dose of NE
Yup we get slammed again today
Conditions are basically very crappy and looks to remain that way all day

We are into neaps


High 7:09AM
Low 1:13PM
High 7:15PM

Holy Crap we actually get a break from the Devil Wind on Thursday
It finally calms down and will hopefully be a more pleasant day for a splish splash
Maybe a small shore on the pushing tide or even a few lumps and bumps and the tide drains later


High 8:16AM
Low 2:31PM

Finally a southerly on Friday morning.
Expect mixed conditions as it swings light onshore later
Not worth chasing tar for a better wave anywhere
Look out front for a scratch



High 10:13AM
Low 4:52PM

Big southerly due on Saturday

Have a good one
Keep it simple / keep it clean

We have a nice four foot swell on the sets which breaks out back into a gutter. Looks ok until you get out there
The rest of the sand is al on the beach. So it’s a scratch
Light onshore for the day. It could improve on the draining tide so keep an eye on it

High 4:19AM
Low 10:22AM
High 4:31PM



It looks like the onshore may ruffle matters up for anything on Saturday morning
Early high is a nobber. Only hope is for a shorey but even that is 50/50
Devil wind tightens the screws around mid morning and pastes us all day


High 4:50AM
Low 10:52AM
High 5:00PM

Bit of a confusion of winds on Sunday with both a southerly early swinging to onshore later
We don’t really want the southerly. We need the east angle to stay for any hope of a decent shorey
It’s a scratch once again
Sunday is Armistis Day. When the Guns fell silent ending world war one.
I am a MOTH and this day is our Remembrance Day.
If you have a Poppy the wear it with pride and remember those young souls who gave up their tomorrow for our today

It’s a bowl of lumpy porridge as southerly wind mixes with easterly swell
Winds remain light S to SE for most of the day so there is a slight hope of a scratch later as the tide settles in


Low 8:08AM
High 2:23PM


And its back to being slammed by another buster SW early Tuesday morning
The only place – dirt bin


Low 8:45AM
High 2:57PM


The southerly continues to pound away all day Wednesday
Dirt bin the call once again


Low 9:19AM
High 3:30PM

Onshore is back on Thursday

Have a good one
Keep it simple / keep it clean
